James Greenâ€™s â€˜Donkey Jukeboxâ€™ arrives in six partitions, the first of which opens very prettily with warm, winsome and melodic drones via his squeezebox and organ. The second is a snowy scene painted by gently plinking pianos. He continues to wend his mournful way through discordant accordion and evocative Ghost-Boxy synths, a magical combination thatâ€™s both childlike and wistfully adult like. This music is deliciously wintry, melancholic and beautiful.
The record is limited to 150 copies on teal coloured vinyl or too 100 Black vinyl LP, plus lathe cut 7″, print and badge.

The Donkey Jukebox album was made to accompany my donkey prints, a kind of soundtrack. I'm a linocut/screen-print artist and a lot of my work is based on an imaginary donkey world.
The project was initially conceived as part of an art installation for the Pub Scrawl project set up by the Month Of Sundays gallery in Sheffield, UK.
The super-limited album package (LP/7inch//risograph/badges and token) is available from the Sonido Polifonico label. The standard LP/risograph version will be available from good independent record shops, inc Norman Records.
